When we are close to God, we have the power to be fearless. How? Well, ask yourself, “What is God afraid of?” Nothing. He is NOT afraid. Do we fear death, disease, heartbreak, financial disaster, career failure, peer pressure or loneliness? He fears none of these things! I’ve learned that when fear creeps back into my life, it’s because I’ve also allowed sin to creep back in and it has distanced me from God. Evil is sneaky–it isn’t just doing what’s wrong–it’s ALSO not doing what’s right like—not trusting God.

Sin ALWAYS separates us from a sense of God’s presence. He hates it—and reasonably so—it cost His Son His life. If you want to live in fear—live in sin.

To live fearlessly, you must spend time with your Holy Father and conform your life to His ways.

Daniel, a slave, spent time with God three times a day. He became a top advisor to the king of the country which had enslaved him. The other advisors wanted to destroy him. They knew he worshipped God and thus, they had the king sign a law forbidding the worship of God. Daniel’s reaction wasn’t to hide. The Bible says, “When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem. He got down on his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.” (Daniel 6:10) Even though he knew it meant his death, Daniel prayed with the windows OPEN.

Daniel knew God so well that the threat of death didn’t scare him. He knew his greatest strength was in God’s power. He’d already seen God make him—a powerless slave–the king’s chief advisor. God was much more real to Daniel than a pack of roaring, snarling lions!

The Bible says, “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (‭Proverbs‬ ‭28:1‬) When we purify our heart, we draw close to our righteous Father and–He fights our battles. When our heart becomes lost in His, our fear is lost in His strength. Our time with God is the most powerful time of our day. To live in God’s power, we must live in His presence. In His presence we are never afraid!
